At work I access the internet on my laptop through a proxy server. At home I need to remove the proxy settings in Firefox to access the internet. Is there any way of having 2 different access setups so I don't have to make these chages?

The add-on QuickProxy adds a button to the status bar that can turn proxy settings on and off with one click.

The proxy settings are probably delivered by group policy on authentication to the domain and will set internet explorer connection settings etc....
You could then install Firefox which wont be affected by GPO for connections outside of work!

Personally I use switchy, very similar to quickproxy but it does IE and Chrome
